Today in Dio: Killer Aerosmith Cover with Yngwie Malmsteen on Guitar
I’ve never heard this cover of Aerosmith’s “Dream On” by Ronnie James Dio and Yngwie Malmsteen, and I gotta give major props to Bring Back Glam! for alerting me to its existence. It rules. It’s recognizable as Aerosmith’s classic, but it’s also more metal. Basically, I’m in love with it, and after I publish this, I’m gonna go out and buy it a ring. If it will have me, I’d like to spend the rest of my life making it happy.
So is Ronnie James Dio the anti-Axel Rudi Pell? It would certainly explain why ARP when out of his way to butcher Dio’s “Holy Diver,” amongst other covers.
